CARDBOARD

More regarding the debate of Complementarianism (men and women have different roles in ministry) and Egalitarianism (every position available to men is also available to women) and it's influence on the Anglican Church. Mark Driscoll suggests all of the confusion may be tied together. Says Driscoll:
First the Episcopalians gave us V. Gene Robinson of New Hampshire, the openly gay bishop who left his wife and kids to have sex with a man and later revealed that he had been a closet alcoholic for years. He was the obvious choice because he is just like Jesus with the minor exceptions of his beliefs and life.

In an effort to continue selecting such fine leaders they have now elected the first female leader in Anglican history. The Bishop of Nevada, Katharine Jefferts Schori (notice the hyphenated last name), was elected Presiding Bishop of the Episcopalian church on June 18. It deserves mentioning that the practice of female priests began only thirty years ago as a result of the women’s liberation movement.
